Another story that starts with a good server followed by a so-so appetizer then killed by the entree. The dumplings were the only thing that wasn't bad. Not great. Barely good. But at least edible. The spring rolls were smothered in some type of mayonnaise-based sauce. When you think asian, you always think Miracle Whip, right? It was the only... More

I've been here zillions of times. I went with a colleague from out of town and ordered to take out. An hour later, they lied and said it was a little longer. Another ½ an hour...they said, almost ready..they then admitted they'd lost the order. No apology at all. Rude. I was astonished and terribly embarrassed. I hesitated to write... More

In the good ol' days the place was quaint and had a lot of charm. We miss the pics of all the patrons posted on the walls, including several of our own. We don't miss the requirement to squeeze your way through the place because it was so small, but it was part of the charm. We used to frequent... More

Finally made it to this quaint sushi place in downtown Annapolis. Great sushi and atmosphere. Our waiter suggested the tuna belly special which was OUT OF THIS WORLD and worth the $21 price tag. Other rolls were great as well, with melt in your mouth salmon included. Had a lovely time sitting at the sushi bar!

Great place to grab a roll or several! Very roomy interior. Staff was great and service was as well. Menu was very diverse. We had a couple of rolls and were sated.

The spring rolls are amazing, and the sushi is always really good and fresh. Nice location on main street.

We discovered sushi in the mid 80' in California and since then we have had much sushi. I can honestly say that Joss serves the freshest, tastiest sushi. I have been a regular customer for many years and every meal I have had was just delicious. Our last time there, my husband and I started with a Magura Poke and... More

Terrible establishment. My wife & I never got seated. They kept seating parties with more than 2 ahead of us. When asked if they had reservations, the hostess said, "No, they have more people in their party than you."

Thank grommetik
